Sorkin to write Steve Jobs biopic
THE Academy Award-winning screenwriter behind The Social Network will write the script for a film about Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
Aaron Sorkin will adapt the hot-selling biography by journalist Walter Isaacson for the motion picture screen, Sony Pictures Entertainment confirmed.
"Steve Jobs' story is unique: he was one of the most revolutionary and influential men not just of our time but of all time,'' Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascal said in a release.
"There is no writer working in Hollywood today who is more capable of capturing such an extraordinary life for the screen than Aaron Sorkin; in his hands, we're confident that the film will be everything that Jobs himself was: captivating, entertaining, and polarizing."
The project is being produced by Mark Gordon, Scott Rudin, and Guymon Casady, according to Pascal and Columbia Pictures president Doug Belgrad.
